Look What the Stork Brought!

Look What the Stork Brought!!!! - This weeks challenge at Sew Many Challenges is 3 or more brads. It is an easy challenge and you don't have to use a Sew Many Cards image to join in on the fun.

My DP paper is Big Lots Welcome Baby. I cut the image and sentiment using a SpellBinders. The eyelash yarn is from the Dollar Tree. I bought that skein about 5 years ago and I still have most of it. So it was a really good buy. The ribbon is a scrap from my stash. Did you notice my striped brads. I had removed them from there packaging, so I don't know who made them, but they are really fun.
For my card, I used Sew Many Cards, Tayla Stork image, that I colored with Copic's. I have been wanting to color this image for a while, so I am happy to finally have a chance to use it.

We really do expect the stork to bring us a little blue bundle soon. My daughter is due in October!!!! I promise to post photos when he arrives! You know how we grandma's are, there will be lots of photos of him. LOL This bundle of joy will be our 3rd grandson. My husband is ecstatic that it is another boy. He is working on a Boy Scout Patrol, which has 6 boys. I would like just one girl, before he gets his patrol. LOL
Today's Friday Freebie is this adorable Birthday Yummies image. You can get it here, but is is available today only, so get it quick!

My DP is MME's Kaleidoscope. The ribbon is MS and I pulled to ruffle it. My sentiment is Autumn Leaves.

I colored Birthday Yummies with Copic's. I distressed the image with Ranger's Worn Lipstick. Come and show us your brads at Sew Many Challenges!
